R.I.P. Lee Alexander McQueen CBE

Since New York's Fashion Week is in full-swing, I'm sure many fashionistas can't forget that a familiar face won't be there this year.

Mr. Alexander McQueen.

It's so tragic that such a talented individual passed away just a few days ago at just 40 years old.

Twitter and facebook statuses were all a buzz when news of the designer passing hit. Reports say that McQueen was struggling with the recent death of his mother. Joyce.

How sad. I couldn't even imagine what it would be like to lose a parent. Poor guy.

With the fashion world mourning his death, it seems the drama is , of course, coming out.

McQueen's ex-George Forsythe tells the London Daily Mail that the fashion world should stop crying about McQueen's death because "the fashion world is the loneliest place on the face of the planet. It's a shallow world full of party people and party friends and Lee knew that."

I guess that's true, but isn't that true with all celebs?

The New York Daily News has an article out saying stylist, Rachel Zoe has been distraught over McQueen's death by failing to appear at the Project Runway show.

I understand being upset, but it seems like Zoe is kind of being a Drama Queen. Let's hope she's not too upset over McQueen's passing that she's not eating.

Oh, wait. She does that already.
